Here is a quick look at the Charlotte 49ers upcoming basketball season.

The Charlotte 49ers return four starters, including a powerful frontcourt combination and one of the Atlantic 10’s top shooters, from last season’s 19-12 squad that tied for fifth in the nation’s sixth-rated RPI conference and posted a pair of top 20 wins…the 49ers will also be under the direction of first-year head coach Alan Major, a former Ohio State and Xavier assistant under Thad Matta.

Charlotte returns its top three scorers from last year including 2010-11 A-10 Preseason Second Team honoree Shamari Spears who led the 49ers with a 16.0 scoring average, while adding 5.9 rebounds. He shot 46% from the floor and scored 20 or more points in a team-high nine contests last year. Derrio Green average double figures (13.1) last year.
